To buy or to rent?

That is the question!

Is buying or renting your best option?

If you are currently renting a property and unsure if now is the best time to take the next step and purchase your dream property, this webinar is right for you.

This is an online event.

Recent research has revealed that the majority of people would choose buying over renting due to current low interest rates, keeping down the cost of borrowing and the monthly mortgage repayments. But what if interest rates were to increase by 1% while rents remain the same? Would renting then become a better option?


The decision will depend on the individual’s personal circumstances, but on this webinar Joel Brookes will moderate a hot debate to give you the key facts to consider when looking to buy or to rent. This will surely help you to decide the best option for you, making sure that you are aware of what it takes to be a property owner.
